I treated myself to a new 8″ square pan at the store today. I really like the Wilton aluminum non-nesting pans. I have owned one 8″ square pan for years, but one just isn’t enough! Now, I can make a square cake without borrowing a pan from my sister. This is a chocolate cake, two 8″ layers with buttercream between and on top. I made a ribbon of icing and put on the leftover candies from the wreath cake. Nothing too fancy, but it’s always nice to have a cake under the glass dome. We love having a slice after work or dinner. Or both.
P.S. The Nutcracker standing guard is trained to look away discreetly when you return for a second slice!
